Can you pump a septic tank by yourself?

    No. There are health laws that govern the handling and disposal of solid waste. Septic tank pumping companies are licensed. Even small septic tanks contain hundreds of gallons of sewage. Where would you get a large enough pump? What would you pump it into? How would you get it to your local sewage treatment plant?

    I am fairly certain that there would be bylaws in your county that would forbid this. And serious would you really want to do this anyway? How would you transport it? This is one thing I would leave to the pro's. Think of how sick you could make your.

    You probably could, but WHY? What would you do with the - um - stuff? It will stink to high heaven. Leave it to the pros! Seriously, don't do it!
